There is really no commonly accepted, generally accepted definition for an anxiety attack. Many of the symptoms are subjective in nature. Nevertheless, panic attacks can be milder than other anxiety disorders and may be caused by a fear of certain situations, or events.
If you suffer from such attacks, you should always consult your doctor as soon as possible. The sooner you visit a doctor, the easier it will be to pinpoint the cause of the symptoms, since they can often mimic those of other health conditions. Once you have a firm diagnosis, your doctor will be better able to treat your problem. There are many different types of treatments for anxiety. You need to know what symptoms you are experiencing. Your doctor can then assess whether your condition qualifies under the guidelines set forth by modern medical research regarding anxiety, which will allow him or her to plan the best course of treatment.
Symptoms of Anxiety Attacks
One of the most common treatment options for these symptoms is medication. It is important that you don’t immediately begin medication once you find out that your symptoms are indeed anxiety. Your doctor may provide you with several different options for treatment, and the side effects of some of these medications can be rather frightening. If you begin taking medications for anxiety before finding out what the underlying cause of your symptoms is, you may only be masking the real problem and not treating it.
Specific phobias and other fears can also lead to panic attacks. Specific phobias can range from the mildly irritating fear of heights to the outright terrified fear of staircases, water systems, and large crowds. Fears of certain situations, such as riding in a car or riding a plane can lead to symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder or GAD. You should be treated separately from your symptoms of panic disorder. Specific phobias can actually cause your panic disorder to worsen because they are feeding your anxiety beast and making it stronger.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Generalized anxiety disorder can also lead to lifestyle changes. When you feel anxious, you are more prone to avoid stressful situations. This can lead to increased stress levels and general fatigue. The best treatment for this is cognitive-behavioral therapy or CBT. Cognitive-behavioral therapy works to change the way you think about the things that trigger your anxiety, allowing you to deal with your symptoms more effectively.
Another lifestyle change is avoiding the things that cause you to fear. Many people find that triggers their fears. The fear of certain places, certain things, and certain people can actually make your anxiety worse. Instead of being around these triggers. Expose yourself to as many situations as possible where you would not normally be exposed to fear. The key to this is to learn to handle the situations that cause you to fear. Exposing yourself to as many situations as possible will help you face your fear. You will start to realize that there are many daily activities that can cause you to fear, and as long as you can manage to do your daily activities, you will start to realize that there is life outside of your anxiety.
What are the different types of anxiety disorders that eventually cause anxiety attacks?
The last and most effective way to treat your anxiety disorder is through self-help. Once you learn to cope with your symptoms, you may decide to look into different types of medication. You can also choose to go on medication based on the type of symptoms that you are experiencing. However, before you make any type of decision regarding medication, make sure to consult with your doctor so you can discuss the side effects of the medication as well as the benefits of self-help therapy.
